Abstract: Organisation profitability, employees' productivity and their retention will be at risk unless the employees are not living a stress free life. Most of the life incidents encountered by employees that cause stress are related to the workplace. Thus, the present study seeks to identify the various workplace factors that cause stress and their relationship with work life balance of IT working professionals. The information was collected from 372 respondents employed in Chandigarh, Bangalore and Pune cities of India. The results of Pearson correlation analysis revealed a significant relationship between workplace factors (causing stress) and work life balance of IT working professionals. By performing a regression analysis, the study found work support as the most influential factor in explaining the work life balance of IT professionals. T-test results also revealed that male respondents were experiencing less work's ambiguity, less work overload, more variation in task, high work schedule flexibility and enjoy a higher level of overall work life balance.
